The objective of this project was to determine whether, with the current and projected suites of sensors and data systems, it would be beneficial within AMP6 to promote real-time monitoring for key water quality and related metrics.
This report gives details of the cost of real time monitoring of water quality parameters. Benefits were defined using metrics that would maximise value to customer service and company operating efficiency. This information has informed a cost benefit analysis of a number of scenarios focused on addressing aesthetic water quality issues.
